How to Know When Shrimp is Done
There are three things to look for to tell if your shrimp is fully cooked.
Color - your shrimp should have pink tails and the raw, opaque color should become white and no longer translucent.
Shape - cooked shrimp will curl into a “C” shape
Temperature - the internal temperature of the shrimp should read 165 degrees Fahrenheit with an instant read thermometer.
What is an Endive?
Endives are a type of chicory and are similar to radicchio. Belgian endives are usually around 5 to 6 inches in length and can have yellow or red and white leaves. Endives have a pleasantly bitter flavor and can be eaten both raw or cooked. They are often added to salads or roasted. Endives also work well in gratins, soups and stews, and quiches.
Tips for This Recipe
This recipe can be made both straight on the grill or in a grill pan. The instructions below are for a grill pan, but if you’d like to make these shrimp on a grill then thread them onto a skewer so they don’t fall between the grates.
Be careful not to overcook the shrimp - either use an instant read thermometer or watch them closely. Pull them off the heat as soon as they curl into a “C” shape.
